Using advice on a 2008 forum posting I tried to stop a header on page 2 and subsequent pages as follows:- Scroll to the bottom of P1, Page Layout>Breaks>Section Breaks> Next Page. When I go down to the next section by scrolling down, and then delete the unwanted header on page 2, it removes the header from page 1 as well. I am missing something here. I can't see a way to go to the next section other than by scrolling down to it. Any change to the header on section 2 is replicated in section 1 i.e. page 1. Advice would be appreciated.
My understanding of headers/footers is that they appear on every page. If you only want a 'header' on the first page, I would just type it straight into the document as I want it and not use Headers/Footers
Are you doing a letterhead or similar by chance? If so I find it easier to follow Brynit on this one and on the design tab tick different first page. Then close the header and footer and insert a page break so you have two pages. (Delete the page break later)
Now open the header / footer again and go to the header or footer on the second page and insert your second, (and subsequent) headers and footers - "Continued ..." for example and in the footer perhaps "Page x of y".
Close Header Footer and delete the page breaks and save the document.
